Don't want to wait until Feb. 2 to get your first glimpse of Lost's sixth and final season premiere? Well, Losties, you don't have to! All you have to do is be one of 815 winners of Lost's "message in a bottle" sweepstakes and you'll win an exclusive sneak peek at the first few minutes of the show's premiere.
The 815 winners will get a Lost bottle with a USB port that looks like Desmond's fail-safe key. That key has exclusive, never-before-seen video of the season premiere, along with scenes from last season's finale.
So what do you have to do to become one of the 815 ultimate Lost insiders? Figure out if blowing yourself up in the past will make you have a better future in the present? Discover who Jacob really is and if he's really dead? Determine if Locke really is the Smoke Monster or if the Smoke Monster is actually the four-toed statue?
Nope, all you have to do is go to http://lostthefinalseasonsweepstakes.com/ and register by Jan. 17, 2010. Then answer six questions correctly (you can keep trying if you get them wrong) and you're entered. And just so everybody's got a real chance, we're going to give you the questions and the answers. (At least the ones we gave when we entered.) So stop reading if you want to figure out this yourself. Stop reading now. We mean it. Don't read another word ...
